Spring Fling

Spring has finally come! I went to Spring Fling, a Dishcrawl event, with my friends last night. We hopped from restaurant to restaurant (4 in total) and by the end of the night, I was in a huge food coma. Our meet up spot was La Lumiere du Mile End, a small, hippy cafe on […]

the delivery days are over

Since midterms season is over, I finally cut down on ordering deliveries from Boustan/Chef On Call/Poulet Bronze. I got some groceries and made this squid ink pasta for lunch today. All you need is a handful of mushroom, red onions, minced garlic, ham (I’ve forgotten to buy meat…..), black pepper and butter. I garnished it […]

just when we thought spring is coming….

Just as we thought Spring has come, the snow hits Montreal again. I came up with this little list when I was sitting at a cafe, watching the snow falling like it’s Christmas once again. From left to right 1. Blue Bohemian Bardot Ring – Aqua from Samantha Wills 2. Thoughts notebook from Rich and […]

Let them drink tea

The traditions of having afternoon tea and high tea are deeply rooted in England. Historically, Afternoon Tea is very common among the ladies in social occasions, while High Tea is originally a working class meal served at the end of the workday.

You Are Stars.

I just went to my favourite band Stars’ concert Sex and Death in Montreal two nights ago and now I wish I could make it to the one last night. When my friend and I were talking about how long we’ve been listening to Stars, I realized that I’ve been listening to their albums since […]

and i whispered “hey, i’m back”

How many has it been? Five years? It still feels like yesterday when I was studying in Headington back in Oxford. How everything looks like is still fresh in my memories. Our after-dinner singing party right outside the dining hall, making afternoon tea at Napier (millions of cadbury chocolate spread toasts – credits to you […]

can’t get enough of… yogurt.

Hands down some of the best yogurt I’ve ever had! My friend recommended me La Ferme Du Manege yogurt from France when we were shopping at Harrods and he said it’s the best he had (he traveled so much that I can trust his taste on that) The first bottle that I tried was strawberry […]

the markets.

On my last day in London, I went to visit two local markets: Borough market and Broadway market. Borough market only opens from Thursday to Saturday (they close pretty early, so make sure you check the opening hours on their website) and lunch is available from Monday to Wednesday. The market is packed with all […]

A Mission in London

Let’s wind back a little bit to my first day in London last week. Mission: eat meal after meal, until I drop on the ground like a bag stuffed so much that you can’t carry it anymore. And Soho is an ideal place for doing this! My friends and I were going to have English […]

Cigala

The last time I had Spanish food was last summer at the Street Fest on St. Laurent and so it had been a while! I was craving for some tapas and paella while I was in London and so my friends brought me to Cigala. We arrived at the restaurant at around 1 on a […]
